Default Scoop: Honda to launch Jazz "X" soon. UPDATE: Now Launched !

Honda is about to launch a new version of the jazz called "Jazz X" in coming days/weeks. The plant already has a couple of cars which will be dispatched to journalists soon.
A new blood red shade will also make its appearance. Gunmetal finish alloys, spoiler, new grill (active like) and fog lamps will be standard.
Price and other interior details unknown.

If they can reduce the price by around 1 lac then it might kick off got numbers. I hope this isn't one of the Jazz select gimmicks which they tried sometime back.

well, jazz at 5.2-5.6 OTR would be a steal anyday. Hope they brig it close to the priving of Polo. If they manage to hit the sweet spot, Jazz would sell like hot cakes.

The ex-sh price in chennai for the Jazz is 7.31

Active will cost another 35K+ which makes it 7.66!

Alloys+spoiler+fog lamp+new grill+new color might cost another 50-60K going by pricing history of Honda.

Can we expect 8 Lakh+ Ex-Showroom price for the Jazz X?

When was the last time Honda introduced a new model and reduced the price?

Anyways. My guess is that this would be Jazz with the 1.5 mill..But then again, I am just speculating.

This company will never learn!!
with all these features and 1.5 motor may find some takers even if it costs around 9-10L on the road.

Fat chance the Jazz will be launched with a 1.5 L or the price will go any higher. Actually, there isn't a need to get the 1.5 at all. The 1.2 does the job just as well.

@ Honda : Here's an opportunity to accept your folly and reduce the price officially. Dealers are anyways offering 50+ grand in discounts. Make the price realistic and watch the super hatch fly off showrooms.

I doubt Honda would drop pricing by a lakh to make it close to the i20 asta. If they are adding more features to the Jazz, then it is definitely an attempt to keep the price same but trying to attract customers with additional features - exactly like what they did with the Jazz select.

If they want to correct the pricing, they would do it to the current variant with no additions.

Judging by the history, they will keep the price the same and try to boost some sales by making all those changes in post 1. Honda and price correction cannot be used in the same sentence. And I just did it.
